Good Morning, Sunshine!

New routines and order have descended upon the household as I fall into step with Finn's school schedule. She's attending the Insitute for Education in Dublin (posh prep school, her Dad and I are beggared) and she must be at the train station by the crack of dawn. Ho hum. After I drop her off, I do a brisk walk by the sea and sometimes join a gentleman from the Czech Republic for Tai Chi on the lawn before the promenade, as the sun rises over the water. (He's not always there, I don't even know his name, but we bow to each other and off we go.) Then it's back home for breakfast - fruit, toast, boiled egg, coffee - and it's to the computer to start work about 9:30 a.m. Well, that's a new me. Here's a pic of Bray Head from the promenade, a setting used for scenes in The Singing Stone and The Summer King. And I do believe I mention same in The Hunter's Moon.

I've found a travel agent to help me plan my Ireland trip. I've decided to take a walking tour of the sacred/ancient sites. If that can be arranged. it's a women's only tour, which makes me feel more comfortable in a different country.

i think it's really neat that you do tai chi in the mornings with someone you don't know. he's like your special friend, and that makes it so special.
